Winter Lecture Two - Our whales today

New Zealand always had an abundance of whales but this changed dramatically with the development of commercial whaling. The Pacific voyagers’ stories are entwined with whale movements from the days of abundance. Dr Rochelle Constantine will talk about how our whales are doing post-whaling and how science is helping us chart their recovery through the use of research tools such as genetics, spatial mapping, behaviour and abundance estimates.
